My Life

It's taken me 12 years to feel like British Columbia is home. It has always felt temporary to me and I've often felt a longing to move, to find a place where ideas are being developed, where culture is vibrant, where I am closer to a variety of places to...

As I get older it becomes easier to believe in God. Why? Because the experience of not really knowing what the hell is going on becomes more and more real and with that comes the reality that I'm not in full control of my life. While I have moments of...
